IVF-Assist has a single purpose - to help 1,000 women who are having trouble conceiving to get pregnant using our programmes within three years - especially if you intend using In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) or other Artificial Reproductive Technique (ART) to help you conceive.

By the way, we’ll refer to all the techniques as IVF on this site, for simplicity.

IVF-Assist is a psychotherapy and clinical hypnotherapy based programme developed from several years of evidence-based practice and extensive study of formal academic literature by a highly experienced and registered therapist who holds multiple academic qualifications including a Masters degree in Psychotherapy and Counselling Practice. That means you can trust this site to provide factual information and the latest from relevant research.

iStock_000026686996SmallIVF-Assist has been the subject of a substantial university supervised, ethically controlled and triple triangulated (i.e. critiqued by other experts) qualitative research study.

The study reviewed seven out of eight ‘difficult case’ women with multiple prior IVF failures between them, who became pregnant using IVF-Assist. That live birth rate was significantly higher than for women in the same patient category (age, number of previous unsuccessful cycles etc.) who used IVF alone (as presented in the publications of government appointed/recognised authorities).
